Are there areas in your life or work where “good” is good enough?
I struggle with letting go of my perfectionism and see the high price some of my successful clients pay to be excellent at everything. Thankfully, everything doesn’t require (or merit!) precision. In fact, I’ve learned that not only is “good” often good enough – sometimes “done” is best of all. If you’ve ever put off an important task because you didn’t have the perfect supplies, you know what I mean. Our perfectionism isn’t making us better, it’s slowing us down.
The cure for this perfection paralysis is simply taking a first action. Getting started sets you on the path to being more productive and effective.
This month, my challenge to you is to take that initial step and create an action plan or to-do list to tackle a goal you've been putting off until the perfect time. Below you'll find resources and tools to help you progress and succeed.
As always, I'd love to hear from you about how it goes. What is your "good is good enough" area? Reply to this email, and let's chat.
